    Fantastic player in excellent condition. The ultimate in classic Smith tone! It took me a long time to find the right one with the wide string spacing, but I've gotten slammed with a lot of big bills lately so I have to make a sacrifice. With that in mind no trade offers please.

    2012 model. Price of this model new is over $7K!
    7-piece body with Walnut core, Mahogany tone plate, 5A flame maple top & back.
    Macassar Ebony fretboard with abalone inlays.
    19mm string spacing at bridge.
    Walnut headstock cap with abalone "S".
    3-band EQ with series/parallel switch for each pickup.
    Recessed Dunlop strap locks.
    Weight: 10.5 lbs
    Includes OHSC and Smith strap.

    Price includes ground shipping in the CONUSA.

    No trades please!

    If I could afford this bass I would start a band called "Soul Glow" and do nothing but 1987-89 era R&B.

    I'll humbly offer a few acres of prime bow hunting in Fabius NY in trade...

    Let me just dig around for that deed...
